‘Yeah, I should be doing that’ thinks the road sweeper man, watching the young couple working out.

Well. As the jokes have all dried up, although the ranting continues, (mostly behind the steering wheel!), I have decided to try a new tack. I am slowly morphing into a photographer & so thought, if anyone out there wants to see what I’m currently doing, learning & taking, I’d use me old blog page to put some work up, so you can!

I’ve already uploaded some images, but then had to take them down again as, this silly site that I can’t work properly, wouldn’t let me add any text to tell you what they are! So I’m going to write first & add pictures later. My first four pictures are from London. Anyone heard of Ala.ni? She’s a great new solo singer. She has musicians accompany her as well though. She was a backing singer for people like Mary J Blige & Damon Albarn et al. Now she’s stepping out on her own & my partner & I went to London to see her. the first picture is of her & her band. the next three pictures are some attempts at ‘Street Photography’. I am told that it is perfectly legal to take pictures of people in the street (Like Vivian Maier) for example, this means people going about their everyday business. Not closely focusing on them, like in bedrooms or anything personal obviously, but, well, you’ll see what I mean. If I offend anyone, they only need ask & I will gladly delete any photos of them, that they aren’t happy with. Although I don’t even have to do that, but if they ask me to stop, then I will, but if they say OK to keeping their picture(s) that I have already taken, that’s the best scenario for me. So here goes. I will try to add a little caption to say what’s going on in them. The three pictures were taken in Russell Square Gardens in Camden, London back in June of this year. Please feel free to tell me what you think of them. There now, two pictures that should have been down the bottom, ended up above the other two. How on Earth does this site work? If anyone likes this post & wants to see more. Then more there shall be. I take pictures in all categories, although portraits are rare & don’t expect to see any ‘nudes’ for some time to come! I hope to hear from you all soon… In case you were wondering, all photography on this page is my own work. Promise!
